Knicks vs. Pacers: Game thread, lineups, TV info and more

The once-proud Knicks visit the once-proud Pacers in a game that was once considered fit for national television but now will only be shown locally.

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Indiana Pacers and New York Knicks aren't evoking memories of their '90's rivalry these days, so TNT revised their schedule to move the Pacers and Knicks game off their national television schedule and replace it with Denver at Memphis.

At least the game was moved back from an 8pm tip to the normal 7pm at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. George Hill sat out practice yesterday to rest his lingering groin injury but should be available for some time off the bench. C.J. Miles remains questionable with a similar injury but will be a game-time decision after putting in work during shootaround.

The Knicks have their own injury issues with Andrea Bargnani and Amare Stoudemire out with injuries. Jose Calderon and Carmelo Anthony are also dealing with some nagging injuries but both played last night in the Knicks' win over Oklahoma City.

Despite the injuries, the Knicks have scored four of their season-total nine wins in their last five games. Those numbers also correspond with former Fieldhouse fan fav, Lou Amundson being added to the starting lineup. Coincidence? Please.
